Nexus

Cutting edge research into evolution taking place at Nexus

By on Apr 2, 2019 in Blog |

This week Nexus students from Years 7-9 are taking part in a study run by Exeter University.

The study is investigating ‘cultural transmission’; how ideas and behaviours can be passed between individuals within and between groups. It has been proposed that effective transmission of ideas between learners has been very important in allowing humans to become such a dominant species on the planet. We look forward to seeing the completed work when it is published!
